They started out as ordinary, cheap, white sneakers that I bought at Wal-Mart. Well, plain white sneakers are BORING, so I decided I would spice them up with a funky paint job, making them all artsy and fun and interesting.
It looked way cooler in my head than it ended up in reality, only because the paint didn’t stick! In fact, it started peeling off right after the first time I wore them. As you can see, nearly all the gold metallic paint has flaked off, and the blue and red are looking pretty sad, as well. The fake rhinestones, on the other hand, will probably be there forever, as I applied them with that two-part epoxy that you mix together. I think it’s made from the same stuff that hardens dead bugs to windshields.
So now I’m stuck with hideous sneakers that look as if they have a contagious skin disease, all because I didn’t think to use some kind of sealer on them first! But hey, at least they have cute, sparkly rhinestones on them. And of course I wear them, because they’re comfy, and good walking shoes are hard to come by!
